The adventures of Andy…
I want to introduce you to another friend of mine, Andy Jones.
During one of Andy’s recent rides, he found an awesome church and sent me some photos and information on the church. I was very moved and loved the article so much, I asked Andy if I could share it with you.
“Last week I took a ride out to the county of Norfolk (we pronounce it ‘nor-fuk’). It’s the part of our funny little island where I grew up. I found this stained glass window in a small church in an even smaller village called Quidenham.
The window was commissioned by American Air Force personnel who were based at a nearby bomber base in World War Two and was installed in 1944.
In the second picture you can see the church…
The ‘Yanks’ that came to Britain as allies in WW2 are still fondly remembered in Norfolk and there are many memorials around there, by old airfield gates, at crossroads and in Churches remembering them.
There used to be reunions a lot but in recent times fewer and fewer old boys have been able to make it across the big pond.”
